    I have a form that posts diacritical characters.Ffor example, when my browser has the encoding set to utf-8 and the form posts the character
    the post data has these two bytes C3 and 89, which when echoed back on a new page is displayed as ?. Can someone explain when the character is converted to two bytes how I get C3 and 89?
